Onward to 2nd K!

At exactly a year and 7-months here, today, I am a humbled member of the $1K celebrants here on DT. Do I believe it? Well, those numbers up there on the right hand corner of my screen tell me so! I remember being less than a dollar away from my first hundred and not wanting to even allude to it, to anyone, for fear than I’ll jinx myself and not reach that milestone. I can tell you, I now know waaay lot better than that. And so with much confidence and faith in the DT marketing system, I say to you I look forward to the next thousand! Thanks again and again to all the designers who have downloaded my images, the community here who is a wealth of knowledge and are willing to share those information, the tough reviewers—rejection used to be a negative term to me—you folks have turned it around for me, I now call it challenge (but don’t be encouraged please to give me more challenges just yet;)

Yes, it’s been amazing for ‘utterly’ rookie me here! But this is Dreamstime afterall—and that should say it all. ;-) Below are images that I had second thoughts about submitting but did anyway and to my amazement earned me considerably good money.

>>> $10

>>> $14

>>> $19

>>> $27

Having reported the above, for this milestone I want to leave you with what I learned as someone who started with zero knowledge in stock photography: if in doubt, just try it out. That is, if in doubt about whether or not an image is sellable, submit it anyway--well, okay, there is a caveat—make sure the image checked off the pointers in Nikitu's blog::

And, oh yes, the image that got me to this K is:

Wow a figure of 600/659 is really impressive.
Congrats….keep it up.
The last figure, both the candles are perfectly in a line that it looks like one long candle and I was wondering why are they burning the middle of a candle :-)
